Hadith for The Day: The world and the hereafter

أحب الصلاة إلي الله تعالى صلاة داود وأحب الصيام إلي الله صيام داود وكان ينام نصف الليل ويقوم ثلثه وينام سدسه ويصوم يوما ويفطر يوما.

Meaning: “Indeed, the prayer that is most liked by Allah is the prayer of the Prophet Dawud and the fasting that is most liked by Allah is the fasting of the Prophet Dawud. He goes to sleep at midnight, then wakes at a third of the night, and he sleeps again at a sixth of the night. Prophet Dawud fasted one day and broke his fast one day.”

Continuing from the previous article. So, in Islam it is not permissible for us to always fast, perform night prayers without rest, but what was taught by the Prophet Muhammad SAW in his hadith said “There is no best person who always takes care of the afterlife and forgets the affairs of the world or always takes care of the world and forgets about the afterlife so that that person achieves both, namely the balance between the affairs of the world and the hereafter” (Jami Shogir, p: 465, Darul Pole).

This hadith gives advice, if we take care of the world then don’t forget the aspects of the afterlife or vice versa, when dealing with the afterlife don’t forget about the aspects of the world. For example, when we work, don’t forget your intention and pray and always do something that is in accordance with religious law by seeking halal sustenance. And when we pray to become priests, the Prophet SAW also told us to always pay attention to the condition of the congregation, both from the straight lines of prayer, the orderliness of the congregation, not to be too long and heavy because we feel sorry for the congregation.

One time, the Prophet SAW became a priest and at that time he heard the cry of a child and then he hastened the prayer because it was a pity for his mother to be disturbed and his prayer was not humble.
